Miss Club Italia started in 1980 by founder Wilma Calabrese of the Ladies Auxiliary of Club Italia.
Club Italia is proud to host an annual pageant where young ladies of Italian heritage, minimum 16 years of age, can participate to receive the honour of being crowned Miss Club Italia.
Thanks to the sponsorship of many local businesses the contestants are able to participate in many activities prior to the crowning of Miss Club Italia. Past contestants have had an opportunity to take part in a pizza-making activity, a helicopter tour, and visit many tourist attractions that Niagara Falls has to offer.
The contestants also take part in community events such as a visit to a local Senior Retirement Centre, serve at the soup kitchen. The contestants also raise funds for various charities in the community by holding a Wake-A-Thon.
A talent show takes place where the contestants meet members of the ladies auxiliary and entertain family and friends. Judges will be in attendance and select 3 winners.
The night of the pageant, a sit-down dinner is served and enjoyed by everyone. The contestants perform a choreographed routine on stage showcasing their talent and beauty. A panel of judges determines the winner.
For the following year the crowned Miss Club Italia participates in all Club Italia events, becoming the new ambassador for the Club and an inspiration for our youth.
